The Pub (7 Imperfect Haiku Poems)


Animal Instinct

Man and beast
Lingers in the same spirit
To a water hole

Dyslexia

Faltered by need
Is the common man’s creed
Of a jumbled lexicon

Abbey

A place of immaculate prayer
Where real men enter in to vigils
Of slurred chants

Wet Dreams

Men and women
Chatting up each other
To quench the thirst of lips

Legends

Where man
Is the sole narrator of fairy tales
In the past tense

Naked Ambition

A place where man
Searches for procreation only in legend
And not in seed

Drunk

Where the cacophony of noise
Lingers to the impunity of silence
On horizontal ground

of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
